"Jennifer Grant's reflections on creature and place in this bedtime companion intentionally settle the reader. It's an invitation to lay aside life's hustle and bustle and turn to a time of rest. Don't be surprised, though, if whimsical butterflies, dandelions, hummingbirds, and such enter your dreams."
Dimming the Day: Evening Meditations for Quiet Wonder
The moon is out, the air has cooled, and you are ready for bed. You know that scrolling on your phone does not draw you toward sleep but adds to your worries. Power down your phone, take a breath, and begin to dim the day.
Research suggests that we should refrain from screens at bedtime. But it can be hard to give up social media and news without something to take its place. In these pages, author Jennifer Grant offers gentle meditations that help you direct your gaze away from screens and uncertainties and toward the natural world. Dimming the Day guides you to focus on the wonders of God's good earth, from the ordinary head of a dandelion to the exquisite beauty of a fractal.
Replace anxiety with awe, distraction with focus, and worry with true rest. Calm your mind and settle into stillness. It is time to dim the day.
